These little guys are just too cute. I saw the idea on Pinterest but never really put much thought or research into it. I had some extra apples that needed cooked and really craved some pie. So I remembered the pin and gave it a try. These turned out pretty great. I added a little stuffing to mine for a little extra flavor. These are very easy and much lighter than the traditional pie. This recipe makes two servings.
2 whole apples, cored (I used Red Delicious)
¼ cup raisins
1 Tbsp finely chopped walnuts
1 tsp GF all-purpose flour
½ tsp cinnamon
1 dash apple pie spice
½ cup GF all-purpose flour
1 Tbsp butter or shortening or coconut oil (cold)
1 tsp stevia or sugar
2 Tbsp water
½ tsp apple cider vinegar
- In a small bowl, combine flour and butter for crust. Mix with fork until crumbs begin to form. Add in sugar, water and vinegar and stir until dough forms.
- Put in freezer while you make the rest of the pie. Spray two small .5 qt baking dishes or pie plates with cooking spray.
- Place cored apples in dishes. In a small bowl, combine stuffing ingredients. Spoon stuffing into the cored center of the apples.
- Remove crust dough from freezer. Roll out dough onto a lightly floured surface into about ¼” thick. Cut into small, long strips.
- Carefully place dough strips over the top of the stuffed apples into whatever pattern you’d like.
- Sprinkle apples with additional cinnamon or sugar if desired.
- Bake at 350°F for about 35-40 minutes or until apples are soft and crust has started to brown. Let cool for about 10 minutes.
